Disaster Relief - My House

Jordan and I have decided to partner with Compassion because of our shared conviction to bring the Gospel to the world while simultaneously meeting the physical needs of those in poverty. You cannot strip charity from the Gospel and you cannot strip the Gospel from charity.

We are beyond grateful for this opportunity to bring awareness of those living in extreme poverty to our podcast family. Please pray for us and all those involved in this experience so that we may glorify God and love others well throughout our journey.

Despite the tremendous hardships brought about by COVID-19, as followers of Christ we look to God for strength and wisdom. As we strive to help “the least of these” (Matthew 25:40), together we can serve as Christ's hands and feet. Please join us and donate what you can to help these sweet kids in Tanzania. They need your help, and we can be there for them.

How Compassion Provides Disaster Relief

In low-income countries, pandemics have a much different and greater devastation. Currently, a child living in poverty passes away every 5 seconds, mostly from preventable causes. These numbers don't even include the impact COVID-19 can have on these children. With this pandemic, people are losing jobs, education, food — everything that is already hard to come by when you live in poverty.

Donating to the disaster relief fund is a tangible demonstration of the meaning of compassion. In times of disaster, children living in poverty are the most vulnerable and they need immediate help. Your donation will help a child recover physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Sponsor a Child Today

Start Sponsoring a Child Today!

Your tax-deductible contribution of just $38 a month connects a child living in poverty with a loving, church-based Child Sponsorship Program.

Your support provides:

  • Medical checkups, which often save lives
  • Nutritious food
  • Health and hygiene training
  • Educational assistance
  • Access to special services like surgeries and disaster relief
  • Mentoring to help children discover their incredible value as God’s children
  • Most important of all, your sponsored child will hear about Jesus Christ and be encouraged to develop a lifelong relationship with God. Just imagine how exciting it will be when one day you get to heaven and your sponsored child is there with you because you chose to sponsor him or her.

When you sponsor a child, you'll receive your child's photo, personal story and a child sponsorship packet by mail in approximately 10 days.

When children find out they've been sponsored, the joy they feel is indescribable. Just knowing that someone across the globe cares means more than you can imagine. Sponsoring a child in need will profoundly change the future for your child, and will change your own life as well.
